Resuscitation Training Courses

We follow the latest Resuscitation Council (UK) and ALSG recommendations and algorithms. CPR Resuscitation Training is provided by ALS or ILS instructors as appropriate.

We understand that people have different learning styles so our sessions will always be fun and engaging. Practical skills are best delivered in small groups to promote a positive learning experience, so we try and keep our resuscitation training groups small.

All attendees will be given a certificate of attendance.

ALS/APLS pre Course Preparation

We recognise that attending one of the advanced resuscitation courses can be very stressful and although you will be well supported by all the faculty during this intensive course. Adequate and appropriate pre course preparation is a must particularly if you don’t have access to your own in house resuscitation officer. We can help with this.

Many of our trainers are ALS/APLS instructors or course directors and can spend time running through skill stations and scenarios with you. This will ensure you are well prepared and given the best chance of doing your best.

Mock Emergencies

Is your practice ready to deal with an emergency?

Have your team ever worked together in a mock emergency to test out not only their practical skills, but also how they work as a team, if the practice protocols and systems work in an emergency? Why not let us run a mock emergency situation (of your choice) and use it as a team building exercise too.

Reasons to run mock emergencies:

  • Allows your team to work together
  • Identifies areas of good practice and where improvements can be made
  • Enables you to assess how your practice protocols work
  • Demonstrates if staff understand where emergency equipment is kept and how it is used
  • Assesses ongoing level of knowledge and skills amongst staff
  • Gives staff the opportunity for a debrief after the scenario (led by our trainer) to review any areas for improvement
  • Develop an action plan to address any deficiencies
  • Is your practice ready to deal with an emergency [pdf - 124Kb]
